Chinese New Year Celebration Week
We have been talking about celebrating Chinese New Year with the kids. They have taken upon the idea very well. We have been making Chinese lanterns for the New Year. We were fortunate enough to receive PowerPoint presentation from Marissa who is a teacher in Finches group and is from China. We will be learning and doing crafts on Chinese Lunar Calendar. As food is a big part of celebrating the New year in Chinese culture, we showed Parrots selection of Chinese food and they showed the most interest in having noodles. Children wanted to have chicken, eggs, pepper, carrots, peas, soya sauce and ketchup with the noodles. They also added that they would like to have salad (tomatoes, carrots, spinach, cucumber and pepper) alongside. If we have enough time, we will make dumplings as well.
